Where does cuwire keep settings data?

cuwire stores settings in a user-specific directory called the user data directory. The name and location of this directory varies depending on the operating system:

  • Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 or newer <user home folder>\AppData\Local\cuwire.json
  • Linux <user home folder>/.cuwire.json
  • Mac OS X <user home folder>/Library/Application Support/cuwire.json

Supported preferences (for example please take a look to my own prefs file):

  • arduino: non-standard Arduino IDE location
  • sketches: predefined sketches configuration

Arduino folders

Arduino default locations for hardware and libraries will be scanned automatically.

Arduino IDE folder:

  • On Mac OS X /Applications/Arduino.app

  • On Windows C:\Program Files\Arduino and C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino

  • On Linux /usr/share/arduino

Arduino User folder:

  • User’s Documents/Arduino directory
